Professor Eric Robertson was a recent guest on Resonance FM, a London radio station, to discuss the cultural impact of the First World War in France.
Prof Eric Robertson
Much of the Western Front fighting in World War I took place in France, yet the cultural legacy of the war in France remains under-explored in the UK. Professor Robertson was joined by Peter Read (University of Kent) to consider how the experience of the war affected the Cubist and Surrealist movements and the development of French film, pushing some artists towards traditionalism, and others towards the avant-garde.
